Abstract : Sediments on the floor of Eckernfoerde Bay were collected in gravity cores during two cruises in the early spring of 1993 for an investigation of sediment geoacoustic and geotechnical properties. Compressional wave velocities and sediment bulk densities were measured at 1 cm intervals using multi-sensor core logger. Water contents were measured using standard methods. High-resolution, vertical-incidence seismic profiles of the seafloor were collected using the Naval Research Laboratory's Acoustic Seafloor Classification System (ASOS) at the same locations as the sediment cores. These data allow an examination of sediment property variations and their expression on the seismic profiles. jg p.14
